Hi! It’s Joannie McBride here, and I’ve got a quick and easy challenge for you! Halloween is just a few days away, and I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait to see all the adorable children in my neighborhood dressed up in their favorite holiday costumes. No matter how many witches or Harry Potters come to my door, it’s certain that no two will look exactly alike. The same can be said when you take a pre-made accent and dress it up with fun products like ribbon, ink, or buttons to make your very own one-of-a-kind embellishment.
Here’s a simple way to create a unique title. As seen in the October 2010 issue of Creating Keepsakes, Megan Hoeppner’s scrapbook page features basic chipboard letters dressed up with pom-pom trim to mimic the look of the wig in her photos.
- Try adding designer textures and layers to your chipboard wardrobe using fabric, rhinestones, ribbon, and specialty trim to give your chipboard a lift.
